Subject Re: STATE OF AOO: Overall Bugzilla Activity through July 2015
Date Sat, 08 Aug 2015 08:36:38 GMT
Top posting.

If the closure of all old bugs is decided, I would like the team to consider keeping the bugs
that have gathered votes. The threshold remains to be agreed on.
We cannot just dump enhancement requests or bugs that draw much attention from users. That
would mean that AOO does not want to take the whole inheritance of OOo.
